When the cockpit fire erupted on the New York-to-Los Angeles flight, a resulting windshield crack “obscured the pilot’s ability to conduct a visual landing,” passenger/publicist Phil Lobel told ET.

Californication‘s Pamela Adlon and Jersey Boys star Jarrod Spector were also passengers on the flight, along with Olsen and her boyfriend.

The evacuation efforts were by all reports successful, as emergency crews tended to relieved passengers upon the plane’s safe landing.
